Ghost "edit" swapping Release Group secondary types into alphabetic order

Tags: #<Tag:0x00007f7574cea130>

There is an odd new “feature” when editing Release Groups.

https://musicbrainz.org/edit/67614668

As noted in that edit, I was doing a separate edit to add items into an “Includes” relationship. Those edits went through without hiccups. ( https://musicbrainz.org/edit/67614670 to https://musicbrainz.org/edit/67614674 )

BUT when I looked back at my list of open edits I find an edit I did not actually do. I didn’t touch the Secondary Types, but now there is an Open edit which is flipping the order of Secondary Types.

The edit is changing from “Compilation + Audio Drama” to “Audio Drama + Compilation”. And it thinks it needs votes. But nothing has actually changed.

Weird. Never seen that happen before. Maybe something crept in on one of the last databse updates?

It is a bug. Forwarded to https://tickets.metabrainz.org/browse/MBS-10662

P.S. See also how to report an issue, thanks.

I did realise it was a bug. Or “undocumented feature”. That’s why I thought I’d share with ya.

Sorry I won’t be setting up a TicketBrainz account. Personal reasons. I spend too much time here as it is :crazy_face: I can’t get drawn into the rabbit hole of testing as well. I came here for the music side to get away from the IT day job :joy:.

It’s a bit unfortunate, because you spend so much time here already. The forums are all nice and shiny for discussing things, but eventually any bug or feature idea should end up in the ticket system. E.g. for Picard I regularly look through the tickets, including older ones. But a feature request buried deep in a half year old, 40 posts long forums discussion is realistically gone for good.
